Iba Mahr, Raging Fyah and Jesse Royal performed at Wickie Wackie for Kingston Music Week.

As RJR’s Kingston Music Week winds down, Wickie Wackie Live held in St. Thomas was the place to be on Saturday, December 7th. With the beach as the backdrop, the patrons were already enjoying the vibe before the first artiste went on stage. The venue, which was on the outskirts of Kingston, brought out several young conscious artistes and was indicative of the positive direction in which reggae music was heading.

From the singers to the sound systems which played hits from Jacob Miller and Barry Brown to Barrington Levy, it was clear that this generation of artistes were determined to single handedly put reggae music on the conscious path. Among those who performed were a little known but very well received, Adahzeh; the all female reggae band made up of university students. Also present was Notis Records band headed by drummer/promoter Unga Barunga. Iba Mahr joined Notis on stage to make a surprise appearance, performing his hit, Diamond Socks. Singer Jesse Royal was next to grace the stage. His appearance on stage drew the large crowd closer to the stage; it would seem to get a closer look as he delivered several hits to his fans. Chronixx also joined him on stage and gave a cameo appearance. The show was closed by the fast and rapidly rising group, Raging Fyah who delivered over an hour of solid hitting reggae music and dub. Patrons left the venue obviously satisfied with the artistes they had seen and the quality of their performance.
